Six Word Story #21

A Castle Located in the City!

 

**********

 

Last week on our way to the National Art Gallery, we passed by the Château Laurier, which is a beautiful hotel situated in the downtown area of our capital city, Ottawa.

It always catches my eye!

In these days of more modern designs in buildings and skyscrapers, some of the historical buildings still manage to hold their own as they stand apart from the others.  Even after so many years, they shine with their beauty, elegance, and charm.

And especially something that looks so much like a castle!  Canada is a relatively young country, compared to so many other countries that have long and rich histories which include all kinds of castles dating back to medieval times and earlier.   Our castle-styled buildings are few and unique.

For more information on the history of the Château, check here.

    1. Oh cool! How exciting for you, Leslie! Yes, I think there have been renovations since that time of your visit. ❤ I haven't even stayed there yet…..haha! I have walked inside; that's about it. 🙂 Some day I would like to stay over for a night.
